Hi Andrew, first of all, thank you, so very much for all your hard work and dedication to IBT. I am in my 9th week now and have my bed inclined to 5.5 in.
The results have been amazing:
The 1st couple of nights, I felt tingling ( a good tingling)of life coming back to my legs and hands. It was as if my body had been awoken after 10 years of sleep!
Dreaming has returned nightly, but I still don't remember a whole lot in the morning(must be an age thing Sad )
Less trips or no trips to the bathroom, this was something I noticed immediately, the first couple of nights.
Circulation is so much better, both hands and feet are toasty warm, compared to ice cold before.
I'm saving the best for last:
I have been in a wheelchair for 4 years now, and for the first time in 4 years, I can lift up my foot about 3 inches off the floor, a major accomplishment for me. I can even take a few steps unattended or holding on to something. I occasionaly use a walker and the strength in my left leg ( i suffer from dropfoot in that legs)is so much better. My family and friends are astounded by the difference in my gait, they say, I am standing straighter and stronger. I love my IB and will continue to follow this therapy forever. I would suggest to all MSers out there who are skeptical to get inclined,ASAP.
Sorry for such a long post but I could go on forever.
Thank you, Thank you,Thank you, you are my hero!
